Dating to the early 1900's, this French haberdasher's cabinet offers a snapshot into a simpler time. This haberdasher's cabinet was built for a local shop in France to store their textile bits and bobs ranging from buttons, threads, sewing needles, and garment samples.  The base and top are two separate pieces, and comprised almost entirely of pine with the exception of a few oak bits (some door trim, base middle drawer, and a few upper drawers).  The top retains its original wavy glass in all 6 doors.  Please note, the second door from the left does have a very slight crack at the base.  The crack is stable, making the original glass worth preserving.  The interior of the upper retains its original paint, along with one shelf in each of the three sections.  The hardware is almost entirely original, with evidence of four repairs on the smallest of drawers.  Look closely, and you will see a classic French flair on the ornate corbel design on the base of the upper portion; this cleverly houses three separate display areas.  The six base doors open to showcase unusual, and original cubbies that are bolted to the back.  Please note, the bolts have been replaced as the original ones were beyond saving.  This would have been a savvy way for the French to add additional storage without compromising on the needed height to store bolts of fabric.
